'Ceiba's Church', 4.25"x4.25", original drawing & solar plate print
'La Iglesia de Ceiba', 10cmX10cm, dibujo original y grabado solar

My latest print, 'Ceiba's Church', is a solar print on Fabriano Uno paper, using Akua-Kolor intaglio ink (lamp black). It first started as a pen and ink drawing, which was then reversed onto a transparency. I prefer the softer look of the print over the stark black and white of the original.


Mi grabado mas recien, 'Iglesia de Ceiba', es un grabado solar en papel Fabriano Uno, usando tinta intaglio de Akua-Kolor. El proceso empezo como un dibujo en tinta china, que fue transferido en el reverso a una tranparencia. Prefiero el efecto suave del grabado comparado al chocante blanco y negro del original.

I like the graphic boldness of this.

Thanks, DRB. I'll be doing a few more of these since I have some old solar plates that need using soon.

Very interesting process, and I like the outcome very much. I look forward to seeing the "few more".

Thanks, Robin... As soon as we have a sunny day, I'll be doing a demo of the set-up for sun exposure.
